[MP3] Interpol- Try It On (Salem Remix)


According to this blogs First Impressions series, “Try It On” was, to me, a standout track on last-years lukewarm self-titled Interpol album. Looking back, I may have chosen it solely off that opening piano medley. Or, its guitar riff. Who knows?

So I have to say I was little more than curious/confused when I saw that beloved/hated “Witch-House” trio Salem had remixed the song. Suffice to say, that opening piano medley I liked is gone. Hell, most of the song is. But, that’s what a remix is isn’t? A reworking of a song.

I’m not swooning over it, but I’m not disgusted with it either. I’m like that backslash. Walking a line between the both. Check it out below.

[MP3]: Interpol — Try It On (Salem Remix)

If you live in Europe, you’ll be able to purchase the Limited Edition vinyl-only Remix EP this Saturday as part of Record Store Day. Aside from the Salem remix, it also has “Try It On” remixes by Ikonika and Banjo or Freakout. For those of us in North America though, we’ll, apparently, have to wait till late Summer this year.
